This was done for my SWAT team here at JSC. The patch was flown aboard the International Space Station by Astronaut Chris Cassidy on expedition 35/36.
It measures 15×17x2 and is made from some 8/4 walnut I had laying around, and the splines are cherry. This is a first for me using the splines. Made a jig for the table saw and knocked ‘em out. I did learn to really hold or clamp the frame to the jig though. The face of it has about a 30 degree double bevel. It’s tough to see in the pics, but it’s there. And I found a much easier way to hold the glass in. How come no one ever told me to use silicon?! lol
